    Attic Built-ins



    This is how I spent part of my morning. I have a client who has a client that wants some built-ins in an attic office. They want a lot of storage space and specifically some drawers for hanging files (on the left). While I was finishing this up I found out the client is now thinking of replacing the existing access door on the left of the cabinets with a dormer. It will probably mean some changes to the cabinets so I'm glad the whole model is just some Push/Pull work and not completely details.

    I'll make sure to mention the insulation. This is for a house in South Carolina so they probably don't use more than a copy of the Mayberry Sunday paper to insulate a house.

    Im currently redoing my attic office.
    My idea wasnt as large as the sketch you show, but very similar in design.(2 file drawers, 4 drawers next to those, and a 2 door large cabinet)approx 68 inches of built ins.

    I like your design, sharp.

    (as of right now, I might be scratching this project)

    The light detail is pretty cool...
